  Beckham autograph costs Posh thousands
Updated 11 March 2003, 16.13

Victoria Beckham has agreed to pay thousands of pounds to a shop, after she accused it of selling a fake autograph of her husband.

The owners of the shop said the signature was genuine, and that her comments had lost them business.

So they took her to court - and won the case.

Fake signature?

Becks
Two years ago Victoria went to a shop called GT's Recollections at the Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent.

The shop specialises in buying and selling the signatures of sports stars.

But when Victoria entered the shop, she noticed a signed picture of David Beckham in a display cabinet.

On closer examination she thought it was a fake and said so in the shop.

Her comments were then reported in various newspapers.

Apology

The McManus family, who own the shop, were told at the High Court in London on Tuesday that they had been awarded 55,000 in damages.

Victoria Beckham wasn't there but the judge was told that she had apologised to the family.

She also agreed to give the shop a set of official merchandise signed by David.
